Spaceflight Journal Blasts Off
Nature Publishing Group (NPG) and Arizona State University’s Biodesign Institute announced a new open access (OA) journal, npj Microgravity, which will accept submissions in late October. It is part of the Nature Partner Journals (npj) series of online, OA journals published in collaboration with international partners.
npj Microgravity will contain research that enables space exploration and that is enabled by spaceflight, as well as research using ground-based models of spaceflight. Cheryl A. Nickerson, associate professor for life sciences at the Center for Infectious Diseases and Vaccinology at the Biodesign Institute, will serve as editor-in-chief.
“For over fifty years, humanity’s imagination has been captured by what lies beyond our own small planet. The research undertaken into space exploration has even led to technological advances which affect our everyday life. And for the first time, scientists looking to publish on this topic will have the option of choosing a high quality, dedicated journal which is open to all,” says Martin Delahunty, NPG’s global head of partnership journals.
